Understanding Weed Life Cycles with Dr. Carolyn Lowry

Learn how the physiology and life cycles of weeds can help you make more informed decisions on your farm.

For sustainable and organic farmers, weed prevention is key to keeping your farm productive and profitable. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to weed control requires digging in at the micro level while keeping the big-picture in mind.

Dr. Carolyn Lowry from Penn State will discuss using plant ecology to inform your decision-making process on everything from selecting appropriate cultural methods, to identifying the correct timing for intervention. She’ll also cover tools and techniques like tarping, stale seed bedding, flame weeding, and more.

This session is part of our IPM Perspectives series featuring experts offering unique insights, tools, and techniques to help you manage pests on your farm in a more proactive and sustainable way.
